About Hollywood Studios
Disney's Hollywood Studios is a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort
in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando. Based on an idea by Marty Sklar,
Randy Bright, and Michael Eisner, the park opened on May 1, 1989, as the Disney-MGM
Studios Theme Park, and was the third of four theme parks built at Walt Disney World.
The park is dedicated to the facets of show business,
including film, television, music, and theatre, drawing inspiration from the heyday
of Hollywood in the 1930s and 1940s. Disney's Hollywood Studios initially opened as both a theme park and an operating
production studio, with active film and television production services, an animation
facility branch, and a functioning backlot.
